Note: We covered the fantasy impact of Jordy Nelson’s season-ending torn ACL in this article, so Packers will not appear here.
Stock Up - These players have moved up the Draft Sharks rankings over the past week.
Blake Bortles, QB, Jaguars
It’s tough to overstate how good Bortles looked in Friday night’s preseason game. Last year’s #3 overall pick appears ready to take a big step forward in his 2nd season. With improved weaponry and sneaky rushing ability, Bortles is an intriguing QB2.
Brian Hoyer, QB, Texans
Hoyer was named Houston’s starter this week. But a run-first offense and weak pass-catching corps leave him as a bottom-end QB2 in fantasy football.
Doug Martin, RB, Bucs
He looked like rookie-year Martin in Monday night’s preseason game against the Bengals, carrying 6 times for 59 yards. He’s locked in as the lead back in what should be a much improved offense this season. Martin is a nice target in the 6th round of drafts.
